Postural instability is one of the cardinal features in Idiopathic Parkinson’s disease. It is a significant factor of disability in Parkinson’s disease. We aimed to examine the physical activity levels in patients with Parkinson’s disease comparing with healthy subjects and their association with the postural stability. Fifty-six Parkinson’s disease patients and 58 healthy subjects were involved. The disease-specific disability of patients was determined by using Modified Hoehn and Yahr Scale and Movement Disorder Society Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale. The physical activity levels o...

Sleep disturbances such as excessive daytime sleepiness, central and obstructive sleep apneas, restless legs syndrome, and rapid eye movement sleep dysregulation are prominent in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). Mild intellectual deficits presented in many patients with DM1. In addition, psychosocial issues caused by neuropsychiatric symptoms are a clinical problem. We herein present the cases of four DM1 patients with sleep disturbances and neuropsychiatric symptoms in the preceding stage of clinically significant muscle symptoms. One of the cases exhibited a sleep disorder and neuropsychiatric symptoms befo...

Debeljak Therapeutic horseback riding (THR) has a positive effect on the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial functioning of children with disabilities. Parents’ reports of the effects of THR on their children support professionals in individualizing the THR program. With this qualitative study, we aimed to explore parents’ perceptions of changes in the basic life needs of their children with disabilities after six months of THR lessons and to survey parents’ explanations for the causes of these changes. The study involved parents of 13 children with disabilities who were enrolled in a ...

(CNN) — Science shows moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise is good for us — it improves sleep; lowers blood pressure; protects against heart disease, diabetes and cancer; reduces stress; boosts mood; and fights anxiety and depression. It’s especially important in adolescence, where the first signs of depression often begin, studies show. But unless your child is an athlete, it can be tough to wean them away from social media and the ever-present screen to swim laps or go for a blood-pumping jog. A new study has some good news: even light exercise may help protect children against developing depression. T...

CONCLUSIONS: This study reveals that a large set of intellectual disability-related genes contribute to ADHD risk through effects of common alleles. Utilizing this continuity, the authors identified TRAPPC9, MEF2C, and ST3GAL3 as novel ADHD candidate genes. Characterization in Drosophila suggests that TRAPPC9 and MEF2C contribute to ADHD-related behavior through distinct neural substrates. PMID: 32046534 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract BACKGROUND: Venous Thrombo-embolism (VTE) is the major preventable cause of death and disability worldwide. It has the third highest incidence rate of hospital death after coronary artery disease (CAD) and stroke. With the establishment of Virchow's triad stating the major factors responsible for VTE including stasis, hypercoagulability and endothelial dysfunction, the last decade reported number of studies regarding its diagnosis and prophylaxis. Till date the most commonly used clinical marker for its diagnosis is the D-dimer test, detecting endogenous fibrinolysis. This test often gives false positive ...
